DVD players in the car have become a very popular accessory for many people recently. It seems to be the latest rage in car entertainment accessories, especially for those who have children. Kids have a tendency to get irritable as boredom sets in when on a long trip, and it can be frustrating for parents to keep them occupied until they reach their destination.
While there are several different styles and models to choose from, if you are thinking about buying a DVD player for your vehicle to entertain the kids, there are two styles available that would most likely suit your needs. One is the portable DVD player, and the other is the headrest DVD player. Whichever one you decide to choose would be a great choice to keep your children happy and content while on the road.
Lately, many new vehicles arrive on the sales lot with DVD players already installed in them. If you have an older car or have recently purchased a used car, the two options mentioned earlier just might be right up your alley. Let us take a quick look at them now.
A portable DVD player is convenient and can be used not only in your car, but also at home, in your motel room or wherever you want. It certainly seems to be the way to go. They work on a rechargeable battery as well, aside from the power connection in your vehicle. Is not that what portable is all about? Being able to take it wherever you want to take it. For connection in your car, it is generally as simple as plugging a cord into the cigarette lighter and saves on the DVD player battery. With that, if the one you decide to buy does not already come with a battery or charger, make sure that you inquire about the correct accessories for your player.
Headrest DVD players are a hot item on the market today, especially for families going on vacation or those who make frequent long distance trips. They are simple to install in your car, only taking just a couple of hours. Just remove the existing headrests and slide in the DVD headrests; then make the wire connections. An instruction manual is included in the headrest DVD kit upon purchase. Not only are the kids able to watch their favorite DVD movies; they can also play their favorite video games. If you have two of the players, the same movie can be watched on both headrests at the same time, or a different movie on each at the same time. Now that is convenient, when you have two or more children of different age groups or that have different interests.
Both styles of DVD players mentioned here, also have available, the use of headphones or earphones, so parents do not have to listen to what the kids are listening to. A bigger benefit is that it helps to eliminate an argument between the children''I cannot hear mine. His is up too loud!'
